If I was you that MOC would have been snatched away in some sort of Bruce Lee 'howaaaaaa!' move :lol:


Jigsaws were brilliant back in the day. Do kids bother with them now?

Here's a dilemma for ya lol, suddenly there's no toys left in the world, I mean literally nothing, they're all gone and kids will never experience toys ever again. The only toys left in the world are your cherished super rare MOC collection, do you secretly hoard them away?.. or let your kids open and play with them and get to experience what you had and what nobody else ever will...? 8)

I think I will go out and buy some beater MOC just incase the future ends up being a toy less dystopia, that way I can keep my Super Rare MOC's and not feel guilty as I can give my kids the beater MOC to play with. My kids would then not only have toys to play with but they would also no what it feels like to be an AFA employee for the day!
Because he's holding a thermal detonator!!

We all have our time machines. Some take us back, they're called memories. Some take us forward, they're called dreams.

You never know one day it could be that bad haha the film Equilibrium could be a reality, you'll have blokes in protective suits smashing your door down because your neighbour grassed you up to the authorities for possessing illegal toys that could god forbid give you feelings of happiness, then they smash your false wall down and get into your secret room with MOC's everywhere and burn them all, then drag you away to a place where you'll never be seen again.

Buy some beaters and keep them in a metal box buried in the garden.... it's coming! :lol:
